Title: rare/weird ps3 item need information about it
Post by: wowgek7 on October 07, 2021, 07:29:54 pm
I just copy here what I put on gamefaqs yesterday asside from a troll I didnt get any replies.  Hopefully here I have more luck

a year or 2 ago I found a verry weird item. Its hard to explain what it is exactly but it has 2 cd's with thrailers promo material etc.

it has to do clearly with the this is living campaign about the time of release.

however I cnat find ANY information about it nr find it on ebay etc

so I hope some people here can either tell me something about it or tell me who to reach out for to hopefully find more. I dont even know if its part of soemthing bigger or just is complete

I realy hope to be able to get some more information about what I have here. I was considering putting the videos on the disc on youtube but since I dont wanna risk copyright claims thats not an option anymore.

anyway hopefully I cna finaly solve this mystery

here are some pictures of the product

I don't have any additional concrete information, but it certainly looks to be a press kit for Europe's This Is Living campaign. This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2azwoY7E8U) seems to be a part of a 2008 press kit, so, if you've still yet to see what's on the disc, I imagine similar kind of content—promotional videos, game trailers, latest PlayStation 3 system highlights, PlayStation Network information—to be found on the disc you own.

There was a group of users who knew a lot about press kits on Assembler, but I do not know where the prominant users from that forum ended up. :(

Honestly, I don't think a personality like Metal Jesus would be that knowledgeable regarding an item like this. However, that did make me consider two others on our site for you to ask, although they aren't that active on the forums. VGC user psxlegacy (https://vgcollect.com/psxlegacy) has an impressive PlayStation collection and even made a thread (https://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,10978) before hoping to find other avid PlayStation collectors. At the same time, cirdan77 (https://vgcollect.com/cirdan77) is a big PlayStation 3 collector, in particular. You may have luck with these two, but, from just looking at their collections and having responded to their edit submissions in the past, their focuses regard retail releases.

Also, as mentioned in the thread posted before, there is another resource I can suggest, that being Jason at Game-Rave (https://game-rave.com/). Although he seems more knowledgeable regarding the original PlayStation library, he may still have some information to give or, at the very least, be able to better point you to someone else for answers.

what metal jesus is concerned he has verry little knowledge himself about almost everything he does have however a big network and that was what I was hoping for.

those users  here might be an option I am gonna reach out to them I dont have much hope  but its the best  chance I have  and even a smal chance is still a chance.

gamrave isnt an option I feel you send me a link but his site has no contact options so I have no wya to reach out to him.

I might look into that a bit deeper though because there are probatly other ways for that  I have to look into that

edit: reached out to both users now lets hope:)

I have no idea how to get a hold of her. But YouTuber LadyDecade specializes in incredibly rare gaming items. Might be worth a shot to reach out to her.

ok I reached out to gamerave and he had some good ideas.

first off the ebay poster  turns out to be part of a set there are actualy 10 different ones. no idea if they have to do with my thing but it has to do with the campaign so there is an decent chance its related.

another idea he had was that I download the iso from  that black disc  some people and me find and look trough that  maybe I learn something from that. I dont have high hopes since that one is from australia but you never know

I am gonna do that later today when i have some more time if I learn something new I will be sure to update
